Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Twenty years ago, the objectives of the ?rst edition of this book were numerous and ambitious: todemystifytheprocessofwellloganalysis;toexaminethephysicalbasis of the multitude of geophysical measurements known collectively as well logging; to clearly lay out the assumptions and approximations routinely used to extract pet- physical information from these geophysical measurements; to expose the vast range of well logging instrumentation and techniques to the larger geophysical community. Finally, therewastheimportantgoalofprovidingatextbookforuniversityandgra- atestudents inGeophysics andPetroleum Engineering, wherenone suitablehad been available before. What's different twenty years later? First of all, Well Logging for Earth Scientists is long out of print. The petroleum industry, the major consumer of the geophysical information known as well logging, has changed enormously: technical staffs have been slashed, and hydrocarbons have become increasingly harder to locate, quantify, and produce. In addition, new techniques of drilling high deviation or horizontal wells have engendered a whole new family of measurement devices incorporated into the drilling string that may be used routinely or in situations where access by traditional "wireline" instruments is dif?cult or impossible. Petroleum deposits are becoming scarce and demand is steadily increasing. Massive corporate restructuring and the "graying" of the workforce have caused the technical competence involved in the search and exploitation of petroleum to become scarce. Although we are only attempting to address this latter scarcity with our textbook, the objectives are still ambitious.
An overview of well logging. -- Introduction to well log interpretation: finding the hydrocarbon. -- Empiricism: the cornerstone of interpretation. -- Other electrode and toroid devices. -- Multi-array and triaxial induction devices. -- Basic neutron physic for logging applications. -- Nuclear magnetic logging. -- Nuclear magnetic logging. -- Acosutic logging methods. -- Clay quantification. -- Saturation and permeability estimation.
The first edition of this book demystified the process of well log analysis for students, researchers and practitioners. In the two decades since, the industry has changed enormously: technical staffs are smaller, and hydrocarbons are harder to locate, quantify, and produce. New drilling techniques have engendered new measurement devices incorporated into the drilling string. Corporate restructuring and the "graying" of the workforce have caused a scarcity in technical competence involved in the search and exploitation of petroleum. The updated 2nd Edition reviews logging measurement technology developed in the last twenty years, and expands the petrophysical applications of the measurements.
